■pon the pages of this little volume 
of the Chiloccoan we have tried 
to portray the achievements of the 
various departments of our school, 
as well as the extra-curricular activ- 
ities . . It is our hope that our little 
volume may fall into the hands of 
many to whom it will be a genuine 
inspiration. If it renews hopes that 
have faltered, if it brings realization 
of plans of young Indian boys and 
girls to attend our school, and if it 
ever calls up happy memories to 
those whose task here has been 
completed, then our work shall not 
have been in vain.

(School Song) 

Oh Chilocco: Oh Chilocco: 
Where the prairies never end, 

Oh Chilocco : Oh Chilocco : 
You are still our famous friend, 
School of SCHOOLS you are the best, 
You're the school that stands the test 
You're the school that brings us fame 
Ever we'll revere thy name. 


Oh Chilocco : Chilocco : We love your 
campus grand 
We love your lawns and shady walks where 

graceful maples stand, 
We love your sunsets and the stars at night 

reflected in the lake so bright, 
We love the cardinal's cheery call 
And the bright red maples in the fall. 

Oh Chilocco : Oh Chilocco : 
Where your old stone buildings stand, 

Oh Chilocco : Oh Chilocco : 
Ivy covered they are grand, 
They are monuments of hope 
As we on learning's ladder grope 
School that makes our dream come true- 
We are ever loyal to you. 

Oh Chilocco : Oh Chilocco : 
When the morning bugle calls, 

Oh Chilocco : Oh Chilocco : 
We are glad to fill your halls. 
We come here that we may learn, 
Life's great secret to discern, 
Teach us how to work and play, 
Bring us something new each dav.

HE HISTORY of the Class of 1932 dates back to the fall of 1925, 
for it was then that two little timid boys and four no less timid 
girls entered Chilocco, with many others, as sixth graders, and 
these six were destined to stay by the class throughout the years, 

so that to-day they are numbered among the Seniors. 

In the seventh grade the first class officers were chosen. The blue and 
gold became the class colors. Setting about to distinguish itself, the class soon 
gained recognition in athletics, club work, and music. 

The eighth grade found them increasing in stature as well as in favor with 
those in charge of the various activities in school- 
As Freshmen, the class chose Mose Blair, President, and Pearl Garen, 
Secretary. The two have served in those offices ever since. An important 
custom in Chilocco is to stage an inter-class basketball tournament during 
the Christmas holidays. The class of 1932 won the championship in this 
tournament. Furthermore, the class had wrestlers who helped to win the 
Junior College conference championship. It was in this year, too, that the class 
chose "Loyalty" for their motto, and Reed George designed the beautiful banner, 
which bears that watchword. 

In the sophomore year, the class of 1932 gained yet more prominence in 
athletics, music, and other activities. They now had eleven regular varsity foot- 
ball players on the team, and again were victorious in the class basketball tourna- 
ment. We find the class well represented in the band, orchestra, choir, glee club, 
and vocations offered by the school. Many school officers were selected from 
this group. 

And now to climb a step higher; the memorable activities of our Junior 
year, were choosing the beautiful yellow rose as class flower, and immediately 
making preparation to get rose bushes planted so as to save buying roses for 
graduation. The bushes were bought and set out in the flower garden of the 
Junior sponsor, Mrs. Antone. The Class was again well represented in music, 
Varsity football, baseball, basketball, and track. For the third time they won 
the championship in the class basketball tournament. 

At last, after years of faithful labor, patient endurance, and doing that which 
confronted them, thirty-three boys and thirty-five girls finally reached their 
Senior year. This Senior enrollment was the largest yet known to Chilocco. 
For the fourth consecutive year they won the class championship in basket 
ball. Fourteen Seniors played in the school orchestra, eight in the band, ten 
sang in the choir, eleven in the glee clubs, and twenty-three served as school 

It was their good fortune each year to raise their standard of achievements, 
so that it was with pride that they tied their class colors on the key of know- 
ledge on their day of graduation.

ENIOR HIGH SCHOOL Agriculture at Chilocco is taught entirely 
by the project method. The nature and extent of the projects differ 
in various departments, since all lines of agriculture do not lend 
the same opportunity for project work. Projects may be classed 
in two groups; the ultimate projects and the immediate projects. 
Orchard work and livestock raising are two branches of agriculture that 
are adapted to ultimate projects. In the first branch, several years are required 
for any substantial financial return, and in the second, the larger part of the 
finances required for starting the work is invested in livestock. This'type of 
project furnishes no financial gain during school training, but at graduation 
the student finds himself with a substantial beginning in this field of agriculture. 
To illustrate this type of project, we may follow the progress of an orchard 
project. The student, upon completion of his junior high school work, chooses 
horticulture as his vocation. During the first year he is taught gardening and 
the routine of orchard work. This includes the propagation and care of all gar- 
den, orchard, and landscape garden plants. The student popagates his supply 
of slow maturing plants, and cares for them in the nursery. The second year, 
in addition to caring for these slow maturing plants, he adds fruit trees, shade 
trees, and small shrubs to the nursery plot. Spraying, pruning, and orchard 
olanting, together with soil preparation for orchard, garden, and landscape 
work comprises the major instruction for this second year. During the senior 
year, marketing, orchard and garden management, and the cost and upkeep 
of equipment, form the basis for instruction. Trial projects are afforded in 
gardening, orchard planting, and landscape work at the school plant. The senior 
students instruct junior high school students in carrying out this work. Ac- 
cording to the school plan for the orchard project, the student is allowed, for his 
own use, one-fourth of all the plants he propagates in his nursery plot. During 
his senior year he is given two or three weeks leave of absence from school for 
the purpose of preparing and planting orchard and garden plants on his own 
land. The remainder of the student's plants are cared for in the school nursery 
until the following spring, when the student may come and get them and use 
them as he sees fit. 

Immediate projects lend themselves readily to grain farming, poultry raising, 
or any enterprise where the outlay of cash for starting is largely in equipment, 
or one that has an immediate source of financiaLreturn. This system of projects, 
called the "plot system" here, has the advantage of a substantial financial return 
during school training, but it lacks the desirable "starting up" feature of the 
ultimate projects. 

The principle involved in the plot system is the straight one -fourth — three - 
fourth share return. The school furnishes everything required for starting the 
enterprise. The student signs a lease in which he agrees to operate the project 
to the best of his ability and according to instructions, and to leave the project 
at graduation as well equipped as it was when he took the lease. He is re- 
quired to work half-time on his project during the school year and all summer, 
except for two weeks vacation. For his efforts one-fourth of all the crops he 
produces are his to sell. The remaining three-fourths he delivers to the school. 

The original projects started at Chilocco in 1925 were of the immediate pro-

ject type of grain farming. These projects have progressed beyond all hopes. 
The interest and enthusiasm displayed by the students in this work has warran- 
ted the expansion of other phases of agriculture. The ultimate projects were 
brought into existence by the efforts and desires of boys in those departments 
where immediate projects were not feasible. By including both types of pro- 
jects in the curriculum all departments of agriculture receive equal development 
so that the student is not tempted to choose his vocation according to what the 
school can offer him, but rather he selects the type of agriculture he will need 
when he returns to his own locality. 


N ADDITION to the departmental work arranged for the boys of 
senior high school, a diversified farming course for junior high 
school students has been put into practice. This course presents 
an opportunity to learn the fundamentals of all major farm oper- 
ations practiced in this part of the state. 
This general agriculture course has as its main objective the teaching of 
agricultural practices common to diversified farming. The major part of the 
course consists of the general operating routine of the school farm, which in- 
cludes fence and road construction, organization, sanitation, the care and man- 
agement of work animals, and the operation and upkeep of farm machinery. 
The student obtains a general knowledge of the crops grown here and their use 
in connection with other branches of the farm. 

Departmental work supplements this course and is required for its com- 
pletion. After studying farm routine for a semester, the student spends six 
six-week periods in six of the eight departments of the farm. During this time 
the special technique required in raising various crops and livestock is taught 
by vocational instructors. Additional instruction is furnished by students of 
the senior high school. This rotation instruction given by the senior specializing 
in a department adds materially to knowledge of fundamentals and demonstrates 
the technique required for hand skill. 

This general agricultural course gives a foundation or background upon 
which to build a vocational education. A better understanding of nature's 
methods of reproduction and growth helps the student to understand the techni- 
cal instuctions given in the senior vocational classes. Too, the experience re- 
ceived in many phases of agriculture helps to simplify the application of new 
ideas obtainable in magazines, and puts the student on a self-helping basis. 

The ultimate aim of the course is to supply the young Indian boy with the 
farm home environment. Many projects are used to stimulate interest and to 
create a desirable home atmosphere. The value of a general course early in 
school work can not be overestimated. Many junior high school students will 
never finish school. The local farm conditions of his community may be such 
that several of the farm practices carried on here will not be applicable in his 
iarm plans. However, with his general knowledge of these practices, he may 
be able to incorporate them in diversified farm' plans as minor operations, and 
profit by them.

HE HOME ECONOMICS Faculty consists of five teachers. Mrs. 
Pearl Colglazier, who is a graduate of Oklahoma A. and M. College, 
directs the practice cottage and teaches the management and 
related art classes. Miss Lucille Lusk graduated with the B. S. 
^3|fMJ degree at Kirksville Teachers College, Kirksville, Mo., and is the 
teacher of Sr. H. S. Foods classes. The Jr. H. S. Foods Classes are taught by 
Miss Louise Hitchcock, a graduate of Missouri University. Miss Margaret Rior- 
dan gives all her teaching time to classes in clothing and sponsors the Home 
Economics Club. She is a graduate of Clark College, Dubuque, Iowa. Miss 
Flora Maloy, a graduate of Oklahoma University and Teachers College of Colum- 
bia University, is head of the department and supervises the work of the school 
kitchen and dining room. 

The course of study as it now stands requires the following time of the 
girls of each grade: Seventh and Eight grades, 200 minutes per week; Ninth 
grade, 400 minutes per week; Tenth grade, 600 minutes per week; Eleventh 
grade, 700 minutes per week, plus 6 weeks in practice cottage; Twelfth grade, 
700 minutes per week. 

The course of study is constantly being further adapted to the needs of 
Chilocco students. Its purpose is to stress and prepare girls largely for home- 
making in the small home, though graduates may find employment as assist- 
tant dining room, kitchen, and house matrons, sales girls in large department 
stores, waitresses in restaurants and cafeterias, assistant seamstresses in dress- 
making and interior decorating shops. 

A progression from the simplest skills in developing standards for selection 
purchase and construction or preparation begins in the seventh grade where 
she learns the proper use of the sewing machine and begin the problems of 
construction in coarse easily handled cotton materials. Her efforts at sewing 
are largely drills for developing the use of the small muscles of the hand and 
fingers. The succeeding grades add care, repair and renovation of clothing, 
a study of textiles and the principles of dress design, the construction of under- 
clothing, house, school, sports, street afternoon and graduation dresses. Thus 
it is evident that an increasing amount of skill is required of the girl to follow 
the course of study successfully. 

In the foods laboratories work is begun by explaining the arrangement and 
correct use of the laboratory — and unit kitchens. The purpose of and place for 
each piece of equipment is shown and an efficient order of work is planned 
with the girl in order that she .may be able to accomplish the class assign- 
ments and form habits of good method. The work begins with the preparation 
and serving of foods for breakfasts. Luncheons and short units in the study 
of poultry and the making of a vegetable garden follow. Family dinners, 
elementary dietetics, table service from the vocational point of view, and menu 
planning, considering calories, cost, time, attractiveness of food and organiz- 
ation of work on the low income basis are next in order. Upper class girls 
get considerabe practice in catering in the serving of meals to visitors and for 
special occasions. 

Beginning with the tenth grade new units are added to the course of study. 
Home management teaches the proper selection of tools, and supplies for accomp- 
lishing the routine of good housekeeping. It is preparatory to the practice 
cottage unit. Here the girls take their turn in groups of six or seven in living 
as a family for a period of five or six weeks. One girl assumes the role of

mother and her responsibilities in the home while the other girls take the re- 
sponsibilities of the other members of the family as the "mother" directs. These 
roles are changed from week to week until each has been responsible for all the 
phases of homemaking. A guest is invited into the home once a week, and each 
group may give a party during their stay in the cottage, of the type that any 
high school girl might give in her, own home. Interior decorations is another 
part of the eleventh grade study. It . has for its aim, the ability to assemble 
wall and floor finishes, arid the furnishings for the different rooms of a 
house to make an harmonious whole. The practical work consists of pro- 
jects in draperies, hangings, pillows, table runners and patch- work quilt 
blocks, or other household linens, somewhat according to the needs of the 
school. Home care of the sick and child care units are taught by the head 
nurse, Miss Margaret Dixon. Demonstration and opportunity for practice, 
supplement the textbook work of there classes and personal hygiene and home 
^sanitation that protect the home from sickness are much stressed. 

The twelfth grade studies four units in addition to their foods and 
clothing classes. Training in habit formation of the pre-school child and a 
study of his mental development and behavior is followed by the Family 
Relationships unit. That it is important for each member of the family to 
make his contribution to the home atmosphere, as well as to absorb and 
enjoy the pleasures, privileges and benefits of home life, is the aim of this 
unit. Vocational-Guidance intends to give actual help in the placement of 
the girl graduate by assisting her in a self analysis of her traits and abilities, 
after a study of various vocations for women has been made. The study of 
these vocations considers what the worker does, what the work offers, what 
the work requires, and the desirable and undesirable points of the work. 
The Costume Design unit is closely correlated with clothing construction and 
offers opportunity for applying information in line color mass and texture 
problems of clothing classes.

HE JUNIOR AND SENIOR Home Economics students met on 
j October twelfth to organize the Home Economics Club for the 
year. A temporary chairman and secretary were appointed. 
After the reading of the constitution the nominating and in- 
itiation committees were selected. The club adopted the instal- 
lation of officers service suggested by the Tennessee Home Economics 
Association. This furnished a most impressive meeting on October nineteenth. 
On October twenty-sixth the new members were initiated much to the 
enjoyment of the senior members. We have a membership of fifty-seven 

The chairman of the program committee appointed a committee for each 
meeting to give the program. Members of the club offered suggestions as 
to how they would like to entertain at the meetings. 

After the club was well organized it was suggested that we affiliate with 
the American and Oklahoma . Home Economics Association. This required 
money and a plan to make money began. It was decided that the club 
make fruit cakes to sell at Christmas time. Again committees were selected 
and three Saturday mornings were spent in the Junior Foods Laboratory 
making the cakes. They were weighed, wrapped, and sold the week before 
Christmas to students and employees.

LD INDIAN Legends and history show the skill and fine workman- 
ship produced by painstaking labor on the part of the Indian Me- 
chanic, with a very few crude tools, so let us give the Indian boy of 
today a chance to demonstrate his ability with modern tools and 

Indian boys will have to depend on their own efforts to make a living when 
they leave school. Chilocco, realizing this, is attempting to give them some 
means of earning that living. 

Upon this idea, the Trades Department of Chilocco Indian School is found- 
ed, and to any boy above the sixth grade in school, who honestly wishes to fit 
himself for a career in a trade, Chilocco offers a hearty welcome. 

The seventh and eighth grade boys are given a trying out to find his course 
ol study. That is, a boy attending Chilocco in his seventh and eight grades, 
is assigned to each different trade in the department for a period of six weeks, 
to help the boy decide which trade he desires to follow for his life work. When 
he enters the ninth grade the boy has the privilege of choosing his vocation 
and spends his next four years at Chilocco in specializing in this selection. 

The following building trades are offered for the selection of the student: 

Carpentry. Chilocco has a large building program to take care of her 
students. This program shows signs of lasting for the next three years and the 
boys selecting to become efficient in the construction of new and the repair of 
old buildings, will find two very worthy and efficient tradesmen to direct their ac- 
tivities, and plenty of materials with which to work. There is quite a demand 
for really good carpenters, and the jobs and salaries offered request the serious 
consideration of a youth who can qualify. 

Masonry. With all of the building going on at Chilocco, and these build- 
ings are mostly constructed of stone, one can readily see the advantage that 
Chilocco offers to a boy who has decided to become a mason. The instruction 
in masonry not only includes stone work, but also plastering, brick laying, and 
concrete work. When one stops to think of all of the different uses of masonry, 
one can see the advantage of being trained in this trade under such a proficient 
instructor as Chilocco has. 

Plumbing. Because of all of the new buildings being planned and con- 
structed, it can easily be seen that a large amount of plumbing work is required, 
both new and old. This work is all done under the direction of a master plumber, 
by the students in the plumbing department. And as this work must meet the 
government standards, the type of workmanship is of the best. 

Painting. Just imagine a growing city with a population of twelve hun- 
dred, and one can readily see the amount of painting required to keep the dwell- 
ings in good shape. Chilocco observes the slogan 'Save the surface and you save 
all,' when it comes to painting. The students in the painting department use 
over forty kegs of white lead, with eight barrels of oil, five barrels of turpen- 
tine, over eight barrels of inside paint, besides a large amount of other materials 
.under the skillful direction of a master painter. 

Class Room Instruction. So for we have mentioned only the production 
part of the instruction which a student receives while in attendance at Chilocco. 
We also wish to draw your attention to the fact that he receives one-fourth of 
a day in class room instruction under the direction of a Trades Instructor for 
every one -half of a day that he spends in actual trade production.

HIS YEAR Sees several new faces in the Trades Department of 
Chilocco. Mr. H. F. Donovan, formerly an instructor at General 
Motors Institute of Technology, of Flint, Michigan, was appointed 
Head of Trades and Industries by the Civil Service Commission. 
Mr. Henry Matrow came to Chilocco from the Boys' Industrial 
School, Topeka, Kansas, to take charge of the bakery. 

We regret to announce the retirement of Mr. Bertes S. Rader because of 
ill health. Mr. Rader leaves behind him at Chilocco a lasting monument, in the 
form of the many beautiful stone buildings, which he was instrumental in con- 
structing in the past twenty-one years of his service to Chilocco. 

Power Plant. Some of the improvements installed by the students, were a 
new vacuum pump for the heating system, two steam flow meters, and the over- 
hauling, of the steam boilers. One-half mile of new street lighting and one mile 
of poles and wiring were installed. One-half mile of new steam lines was in- 
stalled to heat the new Girls' Dormitory and the gymnasium. A new well was 
dug and connected to the Plant to furnish water. We now have four large wells 
from which is pumped daily, 250,000 gallons of water. 

Mechanic Shop. In the Mechanics Shop the boys have over twenty cars, 
trucks, and tractors to take care of and repair. And with these cars and 
trucks the boys, under the direction of the Chief Mechanic and his assistant, 
are responsible for the transportation of the large amount of miscellaneous 
supplies required to maintain this school. 

Blacksmith. This shop is very necessary, because of the amount of farming 
which is done at Chilocco. It is under the direct supervision of an old and ex- 
perienced blacksmith who has been in this department at Chilocco for many 

Printing. The printing department students, print a weekly school journal of 
the school's activities, the yearly annual of which this book is a copy, all of 
the necessary forms, records, stationary, etc., which are required to maintain 
this school, and a large amount of printed matter for the Indian Office in 
Washington and other Indian schools. 

Shoe Shop. About five-thousand pairs of shoes a year for students of Chi- 
locco are repaired by the boys of this department. Other leather work done 
in this shop by the boys this year, are eight sets of new harness, twelve dozen 
halters, and the repair, and upkeep on the harness for forty -six teams, which 
are used on the Chilocco farm. This past year the Shoe Shop has been equip- 
ped with two new units of modern shoe machinery and a new high speed leather 

Bakery. Boys who select this work as their vocation receive a thorough 
training in the baking business. This fact can be seen when it is known that 
over one thousand loaves of bread are baked daily, besides the enormous a- 
mount of cookies, cakes, and pies that a thousand healthy, hard-working Chi- 
locco students devour. 

Class Room Instruction. The boys who specialize on Power Plant work and 
those who specialize on Automobiles and maintenance receive class instruction 
from a special Instructor. Each boy receives one-fourth of a school day in in- 
struction for every one-half day on production work. All boys working in other 
shops receive instruction from the men who are in charge of those departments.

O A. r\J 



HE CHILOCCO HOSPITAL was Completed and opened for patients 
on November 24th, 1926. It is located on the east side of the lake 
and has a western exposure. A little over a year ago the hospital 
was completely remodeled with extra conveniences, better furnish- 
ings and new equipment. One of the convenient improvements 
was a new eye clinic room on the south porch adjacent to the dispensary; this 
addition greatly facilitates the handling of trachoma cases and avoids much 
confusion that formerly existed during clinic hours. 

Other improvements included tiling of the operating room, dispensary, bath 
100ms for nurses and patients and a built-in drug and dispensing room. An 
entire new heating and plumbing system was also installed and the entire floor 
space covered with battleship linoleum. These improvements have greatly added 
to the sanitary condition of the building. The bed capacity is 47 allowing 80 
square feet per bed. 

With this well organized department Chilocco endeavors to guard with ut- 
most care the health of her students. A physical examination is given each 
student upon entrance and at intervals throughout the year when warranted. 
Special diets are prepared for underweight pupils under direction of the phy- 
sician. Students may go to the hospital for emergency treatment, and if the 
case warrants the pupil to remain, he is placed under the care of the physician 
and nurse until such a time as it is considered safe for him to return to school. 

Preventive measures are used to safe-guard the health of students and all 
are immunized against smallpox, diptheria, typhoid and tetanus. 

Twelve girls from the Junior and Senior classes are assisting in the school 
hospital this year. These students use the American Red Cross Text book on 
Home Hygiene and Care Of The Sick; and are given credit in their school 
course for this work. When they have completed the text book and satis- 
factorily passed the examination they are granted a certificate by the American 
Red Cross 

These students spend a part of each day in the hospital, the two groups 
alternating. They assist in the clinics under the supervision of the Doctor 
and Nurses; they are responsible for keeping the Girls' Ward, clinic, and the 
operating room clean under the inspection of the Nurses. Each girl has her 
turn in the kitchen, where she is taught how to prepare and serve good whole- 
some food. These girls make good assistants and are of great value in carrying- 
on the work in the hospital. In return they get knowledge and information that 
should be very worthwhile to themselves and others through their lives. They 
are taught how to take temperature and pulse, how to give bed baths and many 
other things that are so necessary in caring for sick ones in the home. While 
this is the outstanding purpose we have in the training we try to give them, at 
the same time they are enabled to know with more certainty whether or not 
they should take up nursing as a profession when they have finished school. 

A number of the Seniors from last year's graduating class were given good 
positions as attendants in Government hospitals with the prospect of being as- 
sisted in entering a hospital for the regular course in nursing. 

The hospital staff has been gratified with the earnestness, interest, and 
loyalty of the two groups working with us this year. 


Extra- Curricular Activities

Honor Graduates, 1932 


THE HONOR SOCIETY was organized at Chilocco in the year 1927. To be 
elected a member of this society is one of the highest honors that Chilocco can 
bestow upon a student who has proved himself or herself worthy of membership. 

To be a member of this society is the aim and ambition of every boy and girl 
from the ninth grade through the twelfth. 

In each class there is a set of students who stand out among their fellow 
class mates, who have high scholastic standing, a clean personal record, and who 
are active in the extra-curricular activities carried on at Chilocco. 

The four students of the graduating class of 1932 who have attained stand- 
ing both in the academic work and extra-curricular activities, whose personal 
records are without blemish, and who were chosen by the faculty as members of 
this society are: Reed George, Lawrence Posey, Udelle Sumpter, and Pearl Garen 
as valedictorian.

RT IS AN Activity, not a product. One of its essential aims is 
the production of fine citizenship — not to make artists. Lorado 
Taft says, "However a fine thing it is to be an artist, it is a vastly 
finer thing to be an artist citizen." To be "an artist citizen," one 
must make a wise use of his leisure time. Wise use of this time 
depends on appreciation. If we learn the fun and enjoyment of art appreciation, 
we shall be able to interpret and understand achievements of creative artists. 
We have a great inheritance of painting, sculpture, architecture, and crafts to 
enjoy. Training for tastes — what is good and bad in color, texture, and de- 
sign — involves both appreciative and creative elements. 

The creative element is important; to create and not to copy. Practice and 
study of the Fine Arts trains our observation, trains in the employment of 
color; it aids memory, and aids in a cultural way. Art Education brings the 
enjoyment of the beautiful in nature; it educates for life. 

The Fine Arts classes at Chilocco were organized in September, 1931. There 
are sixteen classes with six hundred and fifty students enrolled. We can reveal 
only a few of the highlights of the art work, but hope it discloses what the class- 
es are doing in developing their appreciative and creative ability. 

The course that is given is a very general one. The first problems were to 
make border designs involving the eight art principles: proportion, rhythm, bal- 
ance, opposition, transition, repetition, alternation, and subordination. Indian 
designs were used by many for these problems. Other problems in class dealt 
with lettering, perspective, memory drawing of the campus, and circus designs. 
Figure drawing was studied, first, by drawing stick figures for action; second, 
by one member of the class posing — the others drawing the figure in this position. 
Designs for book plates were finished with pen and ink. Senior high school 
students made linoleum blocks and prints; and soap carving was a craft problem 
given to some of the classes. All the classes learned the fundamentals of color 
with crayon, water colors, and show-card paints. The color wheel, flowers, 
landscape, pottery and rug designs were the major color problems. The study 
of pictures and the lives of artists was used to supplement class problems. 

The Art classes completed two major projects this year. Three hundred menu 
cover-designs were made for the battleship Oklahoma. Many of the designs 
were of Indian origin. The student dining room was decorated for Thanks- 
giving, with large turkey fruit baskets on each table; for Christmas, with clever 
Santas and red bells; and for Easter, with appropriate and colorful decorations. 

On the 10th of January, 1932, eleven boys met in the Art Studio and organized 
an Art Club. Officers were elected, and plans were made for the remaining meet- 
ings of the year. The Club meets every Monday night. The activity of the Club 
is to afford an opportunity for the presentation of specialized material to those 
who have ability and sufficient interest to carry on work which is not adaptable 
to the classroom. 

Membership was placed on a competitive basis. Pictures were submitted by 
those desiring membership, and these were judged and voted on by the Club. 
The purpose of the Club is to preserve and encourage native ability. The Club's 
efforts culminated in the management of a Fine Arts Exhibition held in the 
Studio. Hanging in the Exhibition was work done by the members of the Art 
Classes of the Club.

HE FOREMOST Vocal music organization in Chilocco is the 
Choir. This group is a fully organized and at least partially self- 
governing body with laws and standards of its own. The aim 
is to develop professional spirit and cooperation among the mem- 
bers of the Choir, as well as furnish music for Sunday services 
and special programs. 

At Christmas time the Choir presented the Cantata, "The Music of 
Bethlehem." The annual carol tour of the campus was also a Christmas 

The Girls' Glee Club and sextette combined form a Chorus of forty-eight 
girls for the second semester. These girls help to furnish the music for the 
many special occasions during the year. 

With the introduction of new Glee Club song books, interest in the Boys' 
Glee Club began to grow. This group and the Boys' Quartette combined give 
as a chorus of forty-eight voices. 

There are about sixty students in the piano department, more than half 
of them beginners. 

In instrumental music we have five organizations, the orchestra of forty 
members, the band with forty-two, the beginners' band of thirty-two, and 
the rhythm band, with a membership of twenty-four. This makes a total 
of one hundred and forty -two students taking instruction on some musical 

The orchestra practices three times a week. Their duty is to furnish 
music for socials, movies, and special parties. The band practices five times 
a week, and their duty is to play for foot ball games, parades, flag salutes, 
and the annual commencement concert, besides aiding neighboring towns in 
various celebrations. The beginners are trained to recruit the older organi- 
zation, as the members leave school. 

The rhythm band is made up of lower grade students, and they are taught 
the harmonica and other rhythm instruments, in order that the leader may 
be able to find suitable material for the school band and orchestra. 

xn 1926 a chapter of Hi-Y was organized in Chilocco, only to be discon- 
tinued in 1927. Three years went by before it was reorganized. This time 
it was divided into two groups, under the direction of two sponsors, Mr. 
Ensley Morris and Mr. McClelland. At present there are sixty members who 
are all actively interested in the work. 

The purpose of this national organization is "to create, maintain, and 
extend throughout the school and community high standards of Christian 
character." The platform is: "clean speech, clean sport, clean living, and 
clean scholarship." The slogan is "Service" and the objective, "Efficient 
Sacrificial Manhood." The activities of Hi-Y consist of religious programs, 
wholesome entertainment, personal Christian work among students, hikes, pic- 
nics, and parties. 


The Chilocco Y. W. C. A. was organized in 1909 by Mrs. John R. Wise and 
Miss Sadie F. Robertson. In 1910 it had a membership of thirteen, while the 
present membership is one hundred and ten, in the older girls' division, and 
seventy-two in the two Girl Reserve groups.

The purpose of our organzation is to create fellowship, to develope charac- 
ter, to serve others, to find a broader interest in the girls of the world, and 
to grow near to God." The motto for the Indian girls is "I am come that 
they may have life and that they may have it abundantly." The theme for 
study classes has been "growing up." 

At Christmas time the Y. W. C. A. girls collected a gift of ten dollars, 
which was sent to the Indian Insane Asylum at Canton, South Dakota. 

Religious work for the Methodist students has been conducted on Tuesday 
evenings, the girls and boys meeting in separate groups, as a rule. The themes 
of the devotional services have been based on the lives of great leaders of the 
church and *the life of Christ. The text book used for Bible study was "The 
Life and Times of Jesus." 

There are seven divisions of the B. Y. P. U. in Chilocco. The aim of this 
is "training in Chuch Membership." The motto is "We study that we may 
serve." The students go back to their home churches in North Carolina, 
Mississippi, and Oklahoma, trained to do definite service. Miss Mary Gladys 
Sharp is the students Secretary for the five hundred and fifty Baptist 
students at Chilocco. 

Junior Red Cross was established here seven years ago. At present the 
majority of the ninety active members are sixth grade students. The sponsors 
are Mrs. Heagy, Mrs. Trost, and Miss Boggs. Their reports show that they 
have made two hundred scrapbooks for the Soldiers' Home at Muskogee, four 
hundred and eighty tepees for Washington's Birthday table favors, two port- 
folios for other schools, besides fifty scrapbooks and six picture scrapbooks 
for our hospital here. 

The Aggie club consists of boys taking the Vocational Agriculture course 
and the members of the Agriculture faculty. Only boys from the ninth to 
the twelfth grade are allowed membership. The purpose of the Club is to 
develop closer fellowship between the members of the different departments, 
and to develop leadership in Agriculture. The meetings, held twice a month, 
are conducted by the boys under the guidance of their sponsors. All depart- 
ments are equally represented. The high light of the club is the farmers' 
party given in April. 


The Girl and Boy scout organizations were formed in 1930. Both are 
making excellent progress. The tender foot test has been passed, and all 
troops are busy on second class work. 

The boys are divided into three troops, with Mr. Harry S. Keller as 
Senior Scout Master. The Scout Master of Troop 1 is Mr. Waddell with Mr. 
Griffin, assistant; Troop 2, Scout Master, Mr. Rowe; assistant, Mr. Toineeta; 
Troop 3, Scout Master, Mr. Rodman; Assistants, Mr. Lincoln and Mr. Sturgis. 

The girls are divided into four troops, with the Misses Jacobson, Lusk, 
Bartley, Soderlund, and Mrs. Donovan as Captains. 

Both boys and girls have had experience in all phases of Scout work 
which are, chiefly: camp life, fire-building, cooking, hiking, wood-craft, na- 
ture-study, first aid, and safety first rules.

Chilocco Pep Club, 1932 

Ishmael Tiger President 

Miss Opal Stuart Sponsor 

Cheer Leaders: Donovan McMillian, Amos Canard, Teasie McCrary, 
Lewis McHenry, Knotchie McCrary 

HE PEP CLUB was organized September 29, 1931. The purpose of 
the Club is twofold: first, to create among the students of the 
school an interest in all of Chilocco's athletic activities; second, 
to promote a good, clean sportsmanship attitude. 

During the football season, the Pep Club held two rallies in the 
Auditorium. These rallies were held on the nights before the games. At the 
first rally, Mr. Colglazier introduced each player. The students were led in the 
school songs and yells by the cheer leaders, the Club, and the Band. At the 
football games several stunts were given between halves. 

Members of the Pep Club are: Albert Brown, Jack Berry, Leonard Brown, 
Mose Blair, Amos Canard, Brent Clark, Jerome Click, Glenn Frazier, William 
Palls, Arnold Glenn, Reed George, Jimmy Hood, Clifford Hornbuckle, Everett 
Huffman, Walter Jefferson, Lewis Ketchum, Richard Liddell, Knotchie McCrary, 
Teasie McCrary, William McCrary, Oscar McCurtain, Lewis McHenry, Donovan 
McMillan, Lester Neal, Joseph Owle, Clarence Perry, Lawrence Posey, J. W. Rat- 
tler, Bates Sanders, Henry Scott, Easton Simpson, John Snell, Grover Takone, 
Virgil Thompson, Ishmael Tiger, Raymond Tonemah, and Levi Tucker.

^ <*> «y HE AIM of Physical Education is to provide opportunities for the 
individual to act in situations that are physically wholesome, 
mentally stimulating and satisfying, and socially sound; and to 
develop and establish habits, attitudes, and knowledge. 

At Chilocco we try to do this by means of physical exam- 
inations, natural gymnastics, athletics, games, posture tests, natural, folk, and 
clog dancing, physical ability tests, organized team games, first aid instruct- 
ion, out-of-door recreational activities, club and wand drills, and self-test- 
ing feats. Everyone takes Physical Education, unless excused by the vo- 
cational guidance committee. If ailments are found that need special atten- 
tion, the student is sent to the school hospital for special care. 

Chilocco has two spacious, well-kept, and well-equipped gymnasiums. 
The boys' gym is fitted with horizontal bars, flying rings, "horses," tumb- 
ling mats, dumb bells, Indian clubs, and wands. Thus the boys are able 
to enjoy many forms of calisthenics, and hand-apparatus drills, tumbling, pyra- 
mid building, plays, games and appratus work. In the girls' gym the work 
consists of calisthenics, wand drills, Indian club exercises, indoor games, mat 
work, exercises on the traveling rings and horizontal bars. Both boys and 
girls frequently profit by health lectures and first aid drills. 

There are nine girls who are training as practice teachers in the Girls' 
Physical Education Department. They are Florence Halfmoon, Leola Freeman, 
Violet Pickard, Seniors; Leona Weller, Floriene Romans, Faye Payne, Fern 
Dry, and Lena Impson, Juniors. 

Athletics forms a vital part of the boys' and girls' programs. Great en- 
thusiasm is always aroused by the interclass basketball tournaments and track 
meets held annually. It is through this series of basketball games that pros- 
pects for both girls' and boys' varsity teams have been selected. Chilocco is 
exceedingly proud of the records made the past three years. We are happy to 
have gained fame in athletic circles, but, at the same time, realize that the 
greatest good has come from the development of those qualities that are the 
determining factors in a successful life. 

Other seasonal games are not neglected. In the fall, football, tennis and 
soccer are played, and in the spring, track and field, baseball and tennis are 
the sports enjoyed. 

As a part of the regular Commencement program the Physical Educa- 
tion Department gives its annual demonstration and exhibition.

Edgar A. Guest 

Not in the goal attained our task complete 
Or in the glittering prize 
Contentment lies, 
But in the struggle and the battle heat 

The pressing onward against sure defeat, 
The matching wit with wit, 
Hitting and being hit. 

Men lcng to rest, but resting long to fight. 
Men stand to pain 
And end to gain, 
But only the very old can take delight 

From comfort, never broken day nor night. 
Victors are fain 
To risk defeat again. 

Contentment's in the doubting and the deed, 
Not in the triumph won, 
But in the keeping on; 
'Tis in the hurt of open wounds which bleed 
The turmoil and the planning to succeed, 
' Once rested, men would go 
New pains to know. 

The long pursuit, the scheming and the fears, 
The need for skill, 

And strength of will, 
And all the hardships of the building years, 

Take on true glory, when their end appears. 
Men at their tranquil time 
Long for new hills to climb.
